Day 13 of Darren’s 31 Days to Build a Better Blog suggests a trip to mall for blog improvement. A trip to the mall? Really? Yes, really.
Stepping away for a day can help clear your mind and refresh your purpose – not to mention keep your eyes from drying up and sticking to your eyelids. Darren includes a list of observations to make note of during a 30 minute jaunt through the mall so get out your list and hit the road (I won’t republish the list in full here to prevent plagerism).
Be sure you have a notebook and pencil, pen or writing utensil with you. For me personally, Wal-Mart is the nearest “big store” but I am able to hit the mall about once a month when we go to the “the city” so even bloggers in rural areas like me can do this exercise.
Walk around for 30 minutes and mull over the list Darren gives in the book. Then find a place to hang out and sit and muse. Since this whole post is a challenge I won’t bother posting a seperate challenge, but rather encourage you to leave a comment with what you learned. A new marketing idea? Way to catch attention of readers? Spot a new trend? Color scheme for your blog design?
Leave a comment and let us know what you learned and observed for your blog during your walk through the mall.
